Hello beautiful people over the internet! 🙂
Even though I am a huge lipstick junkie but til to this day I still get nervous/shy to wear dark bold lipsticks. But of course that didn’t stop me from wearing them. & I think every girl should have a classic red lipstick in their collection. I do not have much but these are definitely some of my favorites that I would love to share with you guys! 😀
Mac’s Ruby Woo is the first classic red lipstick that I owned. When I was researching about red lipstick a lot of beauty gurus/makeup lovers out there said that it is a red lipstick must have! & of course I couldn’t agree more. 😀
As you can see it is a true red with a blue undertone to it. If you want your teeth to look extra white this is the lipstick you are looking for. Plus I think it will suit a lot of skin tone out there. Initially I was very nervous about wearing a red lip but after seeing how beautiful the colour is I fell in love over & over again whenever I wear it. 🙂
Unfortunately I do not have a lot of pictures of me wearing this lipstick. I think this shade is perfect for date nights/events. The only down side is that this is their retro matte formula which some people do not like. This formulation is more drying than their regular matte formulation. Thankfully they did not cling onto my dry areas plus it is actually quite comfortable to wear. & the lasting power is 10/10! I literally do not have to worry of smudging/reapplying issues. It stayed put all night long. 😛
I got this Nyx’s Matte Lipstick in the shade “Crazed” not too long ago. I’ve been looking for a red lipstick with a brown undertone to it. I highly recommend this lipstick & check out their entire matte range collection. I personally think these lipsticks are not given enough attention. They are cheap, pigmented & comfortable on the lips. 🙂
For some reason it looks straight up brown when I swatch it on my hand. But when it is applied onto my lips it is the most gorgeous brick red lip colour. 😀
I can see myself wearing it a ton during the colder months. But unfortunately winter is ending. 🙁 I will definitely wear it during night outs because I love it & I think the colour is very unique.
Last but not least, the most recent red lipstick purchase I did. It is the Smashbox’s Be Legendary Matte Lipstick in the shade “Made It”. This range of lipstick is another collection that I think deserve much more rave & attention. They are super creamy, pigmented, glides on effortlessly & I just cannot say enough good things about them! 😀
I would describe this shade as a wine red. If you are looking for a shade that’s darker than the classic red lip colour, check this one out.
Ugh! I am so in love. 🙂 As you can already tell I love each & every single one of my red lipsticks. 😛 I think each of them are unique on their own ways & they look absolutely stunning & will compliment a lot of skin tones.
I hope you found some tips from this little review/collection of mine. Good luck hunting for your perfect red lip colour! 🙂
